(@alt text): Does that refer to positions, the use of the right tools or just the wisdom of not knocking your gf up before you can afford starting a family?
DLKmusic 7th Jul 2015, 12:17 AM edit delete reply

Takes 3 steps away from Lukkai, and hopes Rose doesn't think I put him up to it!
Mark_L_A 7th Jul 2015, 1:20 AM edit delete reply

I'm not Lukkai and "I'm" ducking and covering from Rose.
That one guy 7th Jul 2015, 7:59 PM edit delete reply
Lukkai's in Europe, so any orbital attacks sent his way by the authors shouldn't bother you if you're in the US.

Oh, hold on, I think this is a slang error. Americans are known to use the verb form, "Fucking," as a general intensifier similar to the adverbial usage of, "Very." An example of this usage would be, "It's fucking tedious to misinterpret this sentence as being about fucking." I'd have to double check, but that seems much more likely than that the alt text was commenting on Jet's sex life.
Mark_L_A 7th Jul 2015, 1:27 PM edit delete reply

Correct AC.

The word is used to intensify the feeling of Jet's Smarts.

To claim that he rally IS that smart, and he knows how to use those smarts properly.

DLKmusic 7th Jul 2015, 5:53 PM edit delete reply

Yes, Anon, in this case, Rose used "Fucking" as an adjective rather than a verb in the alt text. Lukkai was making a joke by deliberately misinterpreting that.

Okay, fine, you win: I facepalmed. How many quatloos is that worth this week?
DLKmusic 7th Jul 2015, 6:50 PM edit delete reply

Two... it would've been worth three though, if you sighed while facepalming!
anonymous coward 8th Jul 2015, 2:22 AM edit delete reply
Feel lucky that you get two, I genuinely had a headache at the same time so I could call for a referee decision on the two. I have more class than that though, so the cheque is in the mail.
DLKmusic 8th Jul 2015, 3:49 AM edit delete reply

LOL, Anonymous! Make the cheque out to the "Luna Star Restoration Foundation", and it will be tax deductible!

Thank you for your support!
Centcomm 8th Jul 2015, 2:56 PM edit delete reply

It refers to the fact Jet is brilliant :D as the other readers have said :D
Lukkai 8th Jul 2015, 11:03 PM edit delete reply

I know, I know. But the temptation to make this kind of joke regularly gets the better of me. ;)

And the wonderful reactions I got this time does not exactly help in curing me of this behaviour. XD

But then do I really want it cured? I'm an rpg'ler. Jokes like these are par on the course for my ilk. (^_^)

Edit: Though the tendency for these particular jokes mostly comes from my dad, I think.

Galina is going to need some sick bay time. I can see where the blood vessels are popping inside her eyeballs.

Never a good sign.

If she were pure human the Epiphytes would have no issues healing her. But she is a hybrid. It will take them time to figure it out.
DLKmusic 7th Jul 2015, 6:54 PM edit delete reply

Interestingly, they will have help from Jet and Avi on that. And, after this, I think the Epiphytes are probably as impressed with Jet as we are.
Centcomm 8th Jul 2015, 2:57 PM edit delete reply

Yeah Gali is in bad shape.. very bad shape.
Mark_L_A 7th Jul 2015, 1:18 AM edit delete reply

Petechial hemorrhaging is NOT good.
DLKmusic 7th Jul 2015, 6:56 PM edit delete reply

Ah, what's a little brain damage between friends!
Lukkai 8th Jul 2015, 11:04 PM edit delete reply

A good reason to call an ambulance, that's what it is!
Centcomm 8th Jul 2015, 2:57 PM edit delete reply

Nope! that is never is a good sign
cattservant 7th Jul 2015, 1:54 AM edit delete reply

The final command...

Wouldn't it be the worst if all those steps are just for a reboot?
Centcomm 8th Jul 2015, 2:58 PM edit delete reply

hehe yeah that would SUCK T1
Lukkai 8th Jul 2015, 11:05 PM edit delete reply

Not if the reboot eliminates the bug.
mjkj 7th Jul 2015, 3:08 AM edit delete reply

Wow, I hope they make it before the next wave....

Go, Gali...!!! *hugs her*

Centcomm 8th Jul 2015, 2:59 PM edit delete reply

The waves are already hitting her at maximum power shes just being shielded but its still hurting her.
Matt Knab 7th Jul 2015, 6:57 AM edit delete reply

Three minutes? Pffft, typical tech support.
DLKmusic 7th Jul 2015, 6:56 PM edit delete reply

HEY!!!! I resemble that remark, Matt!
Centcomm 8th Jul 2015, 3:00 PM edit delete reply

I know right!.. I used to do Tech support so i know exactly what you mean!
T1-G3R2501 7th Jul 2015, 10:41 AM edit delete reply
....And then suddenly a dashing monster slayer swooped in and stole the beacon to hurl it into space for another couple hundred more pages!

Seriously though it feels too close to the end of this comic
Stahp Rose and cent
Sheela 7th Jul 2015, 4:54 PM edit delete reply

You want them to stop ?
Ok, I'm sure they can stop the story.
DLKmusic 7th Jul 2015, 5:56 PM edit delete reply

Feels too close to the end? They've been warning us for 2 weeks!!!!!! Where have you been?????

My guess is that Galina will get this fixed, and then there will be peace on earth and goodwill towards men! It will last for about 3 weeks, and set a new record!
velvetsanity 8th Jul 2015, 1:46 AM edit delete reply

This comic has a planned ending, it's had it from the start, and we're getting close to it. I believe Cent was planning to start working on Staff and Sword again once Luna Star finishes, though it's possible that that's changed.
T1-G3R2501 8th Jul 2015, 10:35 AM edit delete reply
Jeez people. I just meant the story's too good to end.
If I wanted pitchforks and torches I'd raid a small village again <.<
Centcomm 8th Jul 2015, 3:01 PM edit delete reply

There are currently six more pages left to go of the Story! and yep thats it! Hopefully we will wrap things up so that you readers are happy !
Sheela 8th Jul 2015, 6:12 PM edit delete reply

Pitchforks !! :D

*raids village*
Sheela 7th Jul 2015, 10:57 AM edit delete reply

Aw .. Galina isn't dead.
chk 7th Jul 2015, 11:37 AM edit delete reply

I'm still hoping she'll make it.

Really hoping Centcomm . . really, really hoping.
DLKmusic 7th Jul 2015, 6:58 PM edit delete reply

Don't make me get the newspaper again, Sheela! This time it won't be the comics, it will be the want ads you get swatted with! You KNOW I'll do it!
chk 7th Jul 2015, 7:45 PM edit delete reply

Yeah. What he said.
Sheela 7th Jul 2015, 9:25 PM edit delete reply

You guys are weird, newspapers haven't been around for centuries!
DLKmusic 8th Jul 2015, 12:41 AM edit delete reply

**Breaks out the collectors edition 1998 copy of the New York Times**

What was that you were saying Sheela? I couldn't hear you over the rustling of paper!
Sheela 8th Jul 2015, 1:29 AM edit delete reply

*brings out the armored datapad*

I prefer these!
Centcomm 8th Jul 2015, 3:03 PM edit delete reply

Not yet.. :P sheeesh Sheela you would think you dont want Gali to survive this!
DLKmusic 8th Jul 2015, 4:44 PM edit delete reply

DOGS! Smart enough to use a tablet, but STILL isn't pottie trained!
Sheela 8th Jul 2015, 6:13 PM edit delete reply

..... well, I wasn't aiming it at Galina .....
CyberSkull 11th Jul 2015, 7:14 AM edit delete reply
